Mike & Kelly's Engagement

My husband & I had the best time visiting with great friends this past weekend in New Jersey. Mike & Kelly are getting married in June, and Matt is one of the groomsmen in their wedding. Mike & Matt were roomates in college, and it was great to be able to spend the weekend with them touring their beautiful home they've started for themselves, get to meet their adorable cat, and check out the sites around the area.
If you ever need custom furniture, Mike is the one to contact. He has made the most breath-taking pieces of furniture that grace the inside of their home together, as well as many other families homes. He has somehow convinced Kelly to transform their two car garage into a workshop for his talented woodworking skills :) And Kelly is quite handy herself, as she has wallpapered their dining room, and made the absolute best crumb cake & homemade granola I've ever tasted!
Mike & Kelly were hoping to use one of the photos I snapped this past weekend as the guest book signing mat at their wedding, and I'm honored that they asked me to capture their last few months as an engaged couple together. After all, they were the ones who caught the bouquet & garter at our wedding! We really can't wait to celebrate with them!
Hope you love the photos!!! So happy for you guys!

Greater Baltimore's Junior Miss Program

This past Saturday, I photographed the second year of the Greater Baltimore's Junior Miss Program. I was a participant in the program during my junior year of high school and was so happy to photograph the event again this weekend and to capture images of the seven talented ladies who competed this year. All of the girls were shining stars on the stage. As well as being talented and beautiful, the girls were also talented scholars with high GPAs and great potential. It was a pleasure to photograph such a great group of ladies!
On another note, today marks my 100th Post on my blog!!! :) I wish I would blog more often, but life happens. I try to at least post a few images of most of my freelance jobs, as well as the occasional Ruger photo or fun image. I hope everyone who reads my blog enjoys what I post :)

Pup Pics :)

I never get tired of taking photos of Ruger. Last weekend, Matt & I traveled to my parent's house and took Ruger for a long walk, which ended with a game of fetch in the creek. We couldn't believe that he jumped in the cold water, but that retriever instinct must have set in! I also was able to snap a few shots on my brother's dog, Porthos, and Ruger together. Getting one dog to look at the camera is hard enough, but with the two of them, it was quite a challenge! I'm looking forward to spring weather and warmer temperatures so that Ruger can spend more time outside & I have more photo opportunities!!!

Andrew's One Year Birthday Photo Shoot

Saturday I had such an amazingly fun day playing with soon-to-be one year old Andrew. (My neighbor from home!) He is growing up to be such a handsome baby...he had the cutest expressions during our photo shoot. I can't wait to share all the photos with his family next Sunday at his birthday party. I thought it was the best gift to give, considering Paula has been like a sister to me since I was born. I am so happy for her and her husband, Mike. They have a great little man!
Here are some sneak previews of little Andrew's birthday photos!!! I don't want to share too many in case some people from his party are reading my blog! I hope to post some more next week after the party!!!
